Thame Valley Police are reporting that they have received a number of reports of catalytic converters being stolen from vehicles in Berryfields and elsewhere in Aylesbury. They are increasing their patrols in the area.
Here are some ways you could reduce the chances of your vehicle being targeted:
- Where possible, park in a garage. Alternatively, park in a location that restricts access underneath your vehicle and consider security lighting.
- If your converter is a bolt on, get the bolts welded to stop them being undone.
- Finally, identify/etch your converter with a unique serial number and advertise that the vehicle has been protected (window stickers)
